When filmmakers fall on hard times, it’s not uncommon for them to return to their roots.
After a string of big budget failures, that’s exactly what “After Earth” director M. Night Shyamalan appears to be doing for his next project. According to Deadline, Shyamalan is set to reunite with actor Bruce Willis, the star of arguably the director’s two best movies: "The Sixth Sense" and "Unbreakable."
The new film, appropriately titled “Labor of Love,” follows a man (Willis) who sets out on a cross country trek of the United States after the death of his wife. The movie is reportedly based on a script that Shyamalan sold early in his career and, much like his first two films, will probably be set and shot in Philadelphia where the director grew up. Given his recent, more fantastical work, “Labor of Love” is about as "back to basics" as Shyamalan can possibly get.Read More »from A ‘Sixth Sense’ reunion? M.
